If a wet-nosed, bushy-tailed furry friend sounds like the purr-fect addition to your family then head on over to one of four local shelters this weekend.

Assemblyman Marc Steinorth, R-Rancho Cucamonga, is once again hosting the Steinorth 100 Pet Adoption event Aug. 5, 6 and 7 at the Rancho Cucamonga Animal Care & Adoption Center and Redlands, Devore, San Bernardino City shelters.

As part of the event, Steinorth will cover the cost of adoption fees for the first 100 dogs or cats adopted at each shelter, and also bring awareness to pet overpopulation in communities and pending legislation of his bill, Assembly Bill 797, which protects citizens from civil and criminal liability for breaking a window or damaging a car in order to rescue an animal trapped in a hot car.

“Costly adoption fees make it difficult for some to add a new pet to their family. There are so many pets waiting to be adopted from overcrowded shelters,” Steinorth said, in a news release.

To ease the cost of adoptions, Steinorth’s sponsorship includes the costs of pet sterilization, initial vaccinations and microchip.

“When looking to get a new pet, people should look in their local shelters. The animals here are just as excited to join a family as families are to have a new addition.”

Last year’s pet adoption event resulted in more than 200 pets finding new homes, and this year, the hope is to have hundreds more find forever homes.
